Henkel and LBP Manufacturing Inc. have announced a plan to combine R&D resources.

Henkel and LBP Manufacturing Inc. have launched a partnership that will leverage the extensive resources of Henkel with LBP’s product line to provide unique packaging solutions while meeting market demands for more environmentally responsible packaging. 

The companies will combine R&D resources to develop what they expect to be market-changing coatings, barriers, laminates and adhesives. These products will represent the next generation of environmentally responsible packaging solutions for the foodservice industry and will allow each party to expand its presence in foodservice markets.

“Through this partnership, the foodservice industry will see the onset of a new breed of packaging, focused on new uses of bio-based materials and source reduction,” said John Meccia, vice president of Paper Converting for Henkel North America.
